Shadow on Concrete Wall




Morehead City's waterfront is a one-stop-shop to check off everything you need off of your social activity list. Whether you're craving fried seafood with little ones, watching blue marlin get weighed in at the Big Rock Landing weigh station, looking for the perfect gift or are wanting to enjoy a night out on the town with friends, the Morehead City Waterfront has all you need:

  • Enjoy fresh-caught seafood at a restaurant on the water, no matter if you're craving a relaxed and casual vibe, or a more upscale setting!

  • Grab a craft cocktail at one of Morehead's coveted bars – some crowd favorites include Promise Land Market and Arendell Room, both located right in the downtown strip.

  • Peruse the locally-owned shops full of beautiful gifts for anyone on your list. 

  • Want to get a sweat in? The Downtown Barre offers daily classes, like barre, spin and heated yoga. DTB is also home to a boutique with exercise gear and accessories!

  • Morehead boasts a wonderful array of local artists, from pottery to oil on canvas and jewelry. 

  • Every year, Morehead City is home to the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, where boats from all over the world spend the week in a fight for the biggest fish. The weigh station is conveniently located right in the middle of Downtown Morehead.

  • Hop on a charter and spend the day out at sea. If you're lucky, you'll come back to land with a bucket full of fish to put right on the grill!

  • The newly renovated Shevans Park is a stone's throw away from the Cottages and features new tennis courts and large for all ages!

  • A few blocks over on 10th Street, put your boat in the water using the public ramp and enjoy free parking while you're out and about cruising the Atlantic waters. 

  • Want to hit the beach without crossing the Atlantic Beach Bridge? 16th Street boasts a public sandy beach – the Cottages are only a five minute walk to place your toes in the sand.
